What is a veneer?
It is a thin layer of tooth colored restorative material placed permanently over a tooth surface to restore localised defects, discolourations and alter the size and shape of the teeth and to close gaps inbetween teeth.
It consists of a shell like thin semi-transparent coverings made of porcelain (ceramic) or composite resin.
Steps in dental veneer preparation:
a) First Visit : Tooth preparation done by reducing 0.5 to 1mm of the facial surface of the tooth. Teeth shade is recorded.
Impressions of the prepared teeth are made and sent to the lab for the fabrication of the veneers which usually takes 3-4 days. Meanwhile temporary veneers are given.
b) Second Visit : the veneer is tried on patients mouth and then fixed permanently
